    Just a word of caution, if playing the video of his goals in an open plan office on your lunch break turn the sound off. Not my most career enhancing moment.

    I don't know if the lad will do okay I named 4 players who had never played a league game until last season and did very well in the championship on loan from Chelsea and man city. He wants proven championship strikers our problem is we cannot afford their wages simple as that.

    I've not made any "veiled digs" thanks. I'm not moaing about or criticising this signing either, thanks.

    In any case, whilst you might not be denying anyone the right, plenty don't want to hear any alternative view. You've got to be "excited" as opposed to petrified about the season.

    How are we relying on him? Hecky has previously said he want 3 more strikers (2 now). We will be relying on all the strikers to score goals just the same as every other club in the land, not just one particular striker.

    The veiled dig was from Conan. You don't HAVE to be excited. But you don't HAVE to criticise all the time. I've never reacted to a signing by saying so and so was wonderful, it's one in the eye for the doubters etc. I don't initiate stuff like that. I do react occasionally to the constant negativity that is initiated at virtually any move the club makes. As I said people have a right to criticise. If they do they have a right to be challenged on it.

    I think the prefix "Genuine question" before the actual question gives it away. Why would anyone put that before a real genuine question?

    It's like saying "I don't mean any disrespect, but actually you're a t**t"

    Anyway good luck to the lad at Oakwell, looking forward to seeing him.

    To satisfy some, any player needs to have at least 300 league games under his belt or at least cost £1 million before we can consider bringing them to the club !

    Good call. Their fans seem to rate him higher than Marquis, though it sounds like he's quite lightweight and possibly not ready for the rigours of the Championship just yet. Btw, I've never seen him, just going on what their fans have said about him.

    No, it was because of the reaction he knew he'd get by asking a "genuine question".

    It's attention seeking.
